Explanation of Surah No 101 of Quran AL-Qariah (The Striking Hour)
In the Name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
This is an early Meccan Surah, revealed in Mecca. This Surah describes the Judgement Day as the Day of Clamour i.e. the Day of loud and confused noise.
Allah says that do you know what the striking Hour is? It is the Judgement Day when all the landmark of this world will be lost. ( It is possible that a huge star may strike the Sun or the Earth or the Moon or may be strike all three in one go or should be the sun may expand due to its aging process and its surface may come closer to Earth and the temperature will rise. If the Sun further approaches the Earth, the strong gravitational force will break the Moon into smaller segments and our ocean will boil, after the sun becomes red giant it may explode. Allah says that all the landmark of this world will be lost with tremendous convulsion, Men will be like moths, frail and light scattered about. This stage of helplessness in which men will be at first overwhelmed on the Day of account, This Mountains which look so strong and solid will scatter about carded wool.
Allah says that New world will be perfectly Just World, will be established and Allah will be the Supreme Judge. That Day no good action will be lost and no evil one will be blot out but will have its compensation value estimated. The good deeds will be weighed and appraised in the nicest and Justest way for it will take into account his motives, intentions, temptations and surroundings conditions. Against them will be weighed the deeds of opposite kind appraised in the same way. If the good predominates providing he is a Believer, then the Judgement will be in his favour and he will be blessed into life of good pleasure and satisfaction in the Hereafter. There will be the grades of this Bliss according to his deeds. And for the sinners and Nonbelievers and atheists there will be punishments of deep pit of Fire of Hell. All these categories of sinners will also have the grades of punishments suited to the sins of the individual sinner concerned. Since they have been rejecters of True Faith, so their good deeds would be lost and would not be taken into account, Therefore the weight of their deeds will be very light which will entitle them for the Blazing deep Fire of Hell (and previously Allah revealed that the Hypocrites will be at the bottom of Hell for their double dealings)
